EPT Copenhagen to host Nordic Poker Awards

ps_news_thn.jpgThe best players from the Nordic region are about to get their due respect, and they won't have to travel far to get it.

On the eve of the PokerStars EPT Copenhagen Main event, Febraury 15, PokerStars is hosting the Nordic Poker Awards to celebrate the achievements of players from Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

Among those up for an award are Team PokerStars Pro Peter Eastgate who made the final table of EPT Deauville last Sunday and was runner-up at EPT London in October. He's up for both Best Live Tournament Player and Best Performance.


All EPT players are invited to the awards ceremony at Park Café in Copenhagen at 8pm February 15. The 2010 Award categories are Best Live Tournament Player, Best Performance, Best Online Player and Rookie of the Year.

This year's nominees include poker legend Patrik Antonius, WSOP Player of the Year runner-up Ville Wahlbeck and EPT Copenhagen winner Jens Kyllönen, as well as Norwegian EPT Grand Final finalist Dag Martin Mikkelsen.

The awards were first held on the eve of EPT Copenhagen in January 2007. Last year, hundreds of Nordic poker players and fans took part, voting for a favorite player from their country in each category.
